If anyone wants to participate.

For The Institute Of Medicine State of the Science Fall Workshop on Lyme and Tick-borne Diseases - We need your assistance.

The IOM has commissioned our organization to write a paper for the workshop committee members entitled: The Human Dimension of Lyme Disease and Other Tick-Borne Diseases: From the Patient's Perspective

A team of writers have started the paper and we would like your help to make a complete narrative of living with chronic Lyme disease - its impact on family relationships, job/school, finances, health insurance coverage, disability issues and future plans.

Participants' names will be protected; they will not be used in the paper.

Your story, your son and/or daughter's story, about the experience of on-going illness, not to mention, accurate details of the scope and conditions involved will be woven throughout the paper.

Please know that your efforts to contribute to this paper will help to advance awareness to the realities of living with tick-borne disease.

Please send an e-mail with your story to [email protected] Please put "IOM Paper" in the subject line.
Your participation will make all the difference.

Thank You
National Capital Lyme & Tick-Borne Disease Association

Don't worry about the deadline. We really need to hear about the impact on children. Their stories can penetrate the hardest of hearts! Try to send something in in the next few days.

I just got back from vacation. Is it too late to contribute? My daughter and I just got diagnosed. While I've had a very difficult time my daughter's story is heart-wrenching. I would love to include hers.

Pinelady, What a WONDERFUL Website you guys have. I would have loved to participate but; as noted the deadline is past.

Do you know anything of The famous Dr.B's National Regestry program? I have a DVD from 2008 in which he was promoting it. It is to be used for reserch purposes and of course is anonymous and free.
Thanks in advance, Buzz
